Pilot - - PILOT NOTES -

The suc­cess of last year’s Vin­tage Aer­o­batic World Cham­pi­onships (see com­peti­tor Barry Tem­pest’s re­port in Oc­to­ber’s ‘ Pi­lot Notes’) has prompted the or­gan­is­ers to ex­pand the cat­e­gories of el­i­gi­ble air­craft types for the 2018 event, which takes place at Skive Air­port, Den­mark from 16-19 Au­gust, VAWC founder Søren Dol­riis tells us. In ad­di­tion to Vin­tage air­craft (built pre-1955) ‘Clas­sics’ (types built 1955-1970) and ‘Repli­cas’ (plans built aer­o­bat­ics types) will now be able to com­pete. Three new flight pro­grammes are planned: Loop­ing The Loop, Danc­ing the Clover­leaf, and Rolling the Cir­cle.
